6/22/18 - The Trial of Power Begins!:
The Trial of Power has been initiated! Arkron, God of Trials has summoned combatants to the streets of Diamond City to participate in the trial. Prove your strength to obtain powerful items and prepare for the wars to come! Speak to the Trial Overseer to begin the trial!

During the trials, Arkrons most trusted guardians, Shaik and Rook, will occasionally appear. Arkron has also sent his powerful assistant Golluk. This raid will spawn every day and will not count towards the crew cap, however only the most powerful of crews will be able to defeat him!

Arkron has also now recruited his very own Gladiator! Players can attack Teva, Gladiator of Power in the Gladiator Arena to attempt to be one of the top 20 damage dealers who will receive loot. Loot from Teva's chests includes Elementium Wands (top 3), Augment of the Divine Combatant (top 5), Elementium Curios (top 10) and Recharge the Fury potions (top 20). Teva will spawn twice during the event.

Some other changes for this event include:
-The Trial Merchant will now trade 1 of each Aura for EXP.
-Elementium Wand drop rate has been doubled!
-Augment of the Grand Combatant has been replaced with a Divine version.
-Combatant Augment drop rates have been increased by 50%.
-Globe drop rates have been lowered.
-Main Quest Globe requirements have been lowered.
-More Globes have been added to recipes.

The minions Arkron has summoned are fused with each of the elemental powers and will drop items associated with that element. The Combatants drop quest items, augments and a skill orb, however those with the power to do so can defeat the Crusaders for DOUBLE DROPS! Crusaders drop everything Combatants do except the skill orb is replaced with a more powerful version and the Crusaders can drop the Augment of the Divine Combatant. Also, while both of these minions drop the Elementium Curio, only the Crusaders can drop the Elementium Wand.

Combatants and Crusaders can also drop rare items called Auras. Each elemental type of minion will drop an Aura specific to that element and one each of these can be handed in to the Trial Merchant to receive Arkrons Collector Augment.

During this event players can obtain Trial Insignia's from enemies, which will be the currency for the top 5 contest. Players will also have a 1 week grace period after the event to hand Insignia's in to the Trial Merchant for EXP before they are removed. Only 1 character per person is eligible to place in the top 5 for the Trial Insignia contest. This includes cross server and using other RG accounts as well. You can however choose any character on your winning RGA to receive the rewards.

For the first weekend of the event, there will be a 20% off treasury Preferred Player sale, ending on Monday morning at 6AM!

The Trial of Power will end in 2 weeks, at which point Arkron himself will arrive to test your strength. For further information on these topics, see the Trial of Power Q&A on the Trial of Power page.
